Concentrated programming course for automation engineers
In this 5-day course, you will gain a fundamental understanding of the structure and principles of the SattLine system.
SattLine is a Distributed Control System (DCS) that has been used for many years for management, monitoring and data collection of production facilities. It is widely used within several Danish process plants especially among the largest in the pharmaceutical industry.
After the course
After the course, you will be able to perform minor programming tasks on your own and also analyze and modify in advanced SattLine applications.
As a starting point, we have planned a relatively chronological course, but due to the dynamics of the teaching, there may be changes.
- Introduction and presentation.
- The SattLine concept.
- Objects and structure.
- Programs, libraries and configuration.
- Distribution of source code.
- Built-in objects.
- Data types.
- The programming language.
- Window management.
- Alarm handling.
- Data logging.
- SattLine hardware.
- Central I / O systems.
- Boot and download.
- Scan groups.
- Distributed execution.
- Distribution of programs.
- Securing values.
- MMS communication.
- Collection and evaluation.
Teaching and course material will be in English but the course instructor is fluent in Danish so clarification can be done in Danish if needed.
The teaching takes place in modern course facilities with a computer for each participant as well as the use of an advanced teacher-student system.
The course will start out with lots of background and introduction to SattLine but will increasingly be based on exercises as the day’s progresses to ensure that all participants get lots of practical experience with SattLine. It is important for us to use exercises as well as inclusion of practical issues from the participants’ own everyday lives.
After the course we ask all our participant to fill out an evaluation so we can improve the course further.
